Margin Ryan Makov, president of the association of skateboarders, said proceeds of the event and relief goods collected by their members and participants will be turned over to the provincial social welfare office for victims of Yolanda in the Visayas.
“Kahit sa maliit na paraan ay gusto naming makatulong sa ating mga kababayang sinalanta ng super typhoon,” Makov said.
Some 200 skaters from Pampanga, Zambales, Manila and majority from Bataan participated in the one-day affair showing their talent in skateboarding run and hurdling of various obstacles like rail, ramp and fun box.
A teenaged girl tried the rail while a four-year old boy did a simple turn on his skateboard.
Some fell while doing a high jump on the ramp or the rail but the young boys merely smiled and continued.
